MetroCard Van Here April 29

MetroCard Van Here April 29

City Council Member Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. announced that the MTA-New York City MetroCard Program Van will be back in Rockaway on Monday, April 29th to assist residents in applying for and using reduced fare and full fare MetroCards.

Addabbo said the MetroCard Van will be in the parking lot of the Sunset Diner (corner of Beach 116th Street and Beach Channel Drive) from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm.

Councilman Addabbo said his office will be providing free pick ups for senior citizens who need transportation to the MetroCard Van’s location.

Pick up locations will be at the Hammels Senior Center (90-01 Rockaway Beach Boulevard) and Councilman Addabbo’s office at 92-03 Rockaway Beach Boulevard.

Residents interested in being picked up at these locations must call Sandee at Councilman Addabbo’s Rockaway office at 718-318-6411.

The Council Member said he had met with MTA officials and requested that they make the van available on a regular basis to his constituents, many of whom are senior citizens. "The MTA has been very cooperative," said Addabbo.

Senior citizens only need to bring proof of their age and a valid photo ID.

The MetroCard Vans are express-service mobile units where customers can add value to any MetroCards and purchase MetroCards. MTA staff aboard the Van will be available to assist senior citizens, age 65 and over, and individuals with qualifying disabilities in obtaining their reduced-fare MetroCards and guiding them through the application process. In addition the staff will also be able to answer any MetroCard related questions.

"I hope that many of my Rockaway constituents will come out and take advantage of the MTA MetroCard Van," said Addabbo.

For more information call Council Member Joseph Addabbo’s Rockaway office at 718-318-6411.
